ThrawnOmega: Ingot Hunter

My hatred for collectables is well publicised and extensively documented, but it's time I sucked it up and went hunting for some stupid metal bars. As you can see from one of the info boxes on the right column of this blog, I haven't completed a game in almost two months, and I'm not happy about that at all. With Batman and Wolfenstein out this month, my back catalogue could grow even more enormous if I don't step it up. So, in anticipation of those two games, I'm going to do my best to finish Fallout 3, Lost Odyssey, and possibly one more title before Wolfenstein releases.

Tonight's mission is Steel ingots in Fallout 3. Collecting them will give me the final 20 points I need to get the game to 1550, and give me my first completion in nearly two months. As I type this, I have a couple HD video guides loading up from YouTube, so I can efficiently run through it. Since these videos are taking a while to load, I'll probably eat dinner and play some 'Splosion Man or something while I wait. I also need to finish my share of a speech I'm delivering for my Walmart training graduation ceremony on Friday, so that will eat up a couple hours of my night.

Hopefully, the next time you hear from me, it will be with the happy news that Fallout 3's worst achievement has been put to pasture, and that I've succeeded in tacking another completion up on the board.


  1. Ah yes the old ingot youtube video! I five stared it lol. Thrawn thats a blood statement to make that it's Fallout 3's worst achievement. I thought the Alien Recordings were much worse than that. Bobbleheads were also a bit of a buzz kill :P

  2. Considering my game is currently glitched and I can't walk along some roofs in the Steelyard, Fallout 3 may be impossible to complete... I'm going to wait until this weekend to see if I somehow get a patch when I reconnect to live, or I may later start a new save file to try for it. It's a persistent glitch, which is happening across multiple save files for the same character, and shutting down and restarting Xbox did nothing. I'm furious...

  3. Delete The Pitt from your harddrive and redownload it. Should fix the problem!
